"All good things have to come to an end" is an old adage that still rings true. The Baltimore Ravens just won the Super Bowl and united this region, but the breakup began when the "business of the sport" became more important than the need to retain the players that made the team's win possible If only the feeling of being on top of the mountain could have lasted until next season. But Joe Flacco gets a new $150 million contract, and we not only ask Anquan Boldin to take a $2 million pay cut but are ordered to be quiet about it because this is how the game works.

School spirit -- it's a positive thing, but it also seems like a thing of the past, except at Broadneck High, where it's a welcome requirement.Broadneck and Severna Park met in a boys' soccer showdown Thursday at Severna Park. Cheered on by the entire Bruins' football team, Broadneck won the county South Division title by 2-0.By contrast, it's no secret that Severna Park's football and soccer teams don't like each other; you won't see the football team assembled to root for the kickers.Severna Park's field hockey team returned home in the second half of the boys soccer game after a trip and victory at Broadneck.

Memories seem to hang like motes in the sunlight of Peter Kohn's bright and airy new apartment at One East University Parkway. Pictures of his mother, Hylda Gutman Kohn, are everywhere. Kohn emphasizes the "Y" when he spells her name. "I'm very attached to her memory," he says. "She sacrificed her life nearly to my brother and I. We needed so much help." Both boys were considered what would now be called "developmentally challenged." Kohn describes long struggles through a plethora of boarding schools.

The 11 members of the Fallston High School Dance Team have the same mindset when they compete. They practice hard before the competition, and then it's all about team spirit, said AnnaMarie Neunabor, one of the team's three captains. "When we compete, we go to have fun," Neunabor said. "If we win, we win, and if we don't, then we don't. We never know how we'll do in a competition, we just know we're going to do our best." The odds seemed to be against the team this year because they lost six of their senior members last year.

Havre de Grace found a way to shut down high-scoring Harford Christian forward Jon Grant last week. The Warriors put three and four players on Grant whenever he'd touch the ball. That strategy kept Grant scoreless and helped Havre de Grace post a 3-0 shutout. But not many teams have done anything close to that against Grant. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound senior is a four-year starter who reached the 100-goal plateau earlier this month. "There are a lot of kids who have that frame, but few have the explosiveness and breakaway speed he's got," Harford Christian coach Bryan Wilson said.

For months, Ravens fans have been trading in their Friday business attire, work uniforms and school clothes for purple-hued garments - flaunting their support for the team. But this Purple Friday could be the most extreme yet. As the AFC North champions prepare to face the Houston Texans in a home playoff game this weekend, some schoolchildren will get to shed uniforms to don team colors. National Aquarium staff members are wearing Ravens jerseys or purple shirts in place of the usual blue polos, and in Annapolis, Gov. Martin O'Malley has ordered purple illumination for some state buildings and declared an official "Purple Friday" for state workers.

I'M NOT MUCH of a sports fan. But when a local high school girls basketball team wins the state championship, that's something to celebrate. And when a local girl becomes Player of the Year, it's worth a story. However, the real story is not about a player, but about a team. Jill Marano, a junior at Arundel High School, has been named Anne Arundel County Player of the Year by The Sun and the Annapolis Capital. She was also chosen for the all-metro girls basketball team and has been featured in newspaper and television stories.

Notice more purple and black around town lately? That's a sure sign that the Ravens' season opener is approaching, transforming the Baltimore area's visual landscape just as surely as fall foliage will soon dot the countryside. But there's more: The aromas of sizzling sausage cooking on a tailgater's grill, the pulsating sounds of the marching bands, the thousands of fans who chant and cheer in a fist-pumping frenzy. The behind-the scenes staffers working to make sure everything goes without a hitch.

Star Trek. *** ( 3 STARS) Before the rest of the summer-franchise blockbusters crowd it out of theaters, see this one on the big screen - not because the filmmaker, J.J. Abrams, is a great visual artist (far from it), but because, as a storyteller, he gives all the characters on the Starship Enterprise room to interact and breathe. This movie has team spirit - though, for my money, Simon Pegg's Scotty steals the show. Opening next Friday Easy Virtue: (Sony Pictures Classics) A stuffy English family is perturbed when the favorite son brings home his enlightened American bride.

Never mind that they only had four returning players and finished with a losing record. When members of the Patterson High School lacrosse team talk about their difficult spring, it always comes back to the midseason death of their captain, senior Christopher Clarke. Clarke was fatally shot after practice March 13, an innocent bystander in a street shooting near his home in the Belair-Edison neighborhood. Patterson Principal Laura Lee D'Anna, lacrosse coach Jonathan Kehl and three of Clarke's former teammates remembered him yesterday as they accepted dozens of new and barely-used lacrosse sticks and pieces of protective gear donated to the school by AT&T.
